Simply Powerful

Is there someone in your life who needs peace?

This is what God promises and delivers to you:

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.” John 14:27

Pray this simply powerful prayer at 1:11 pm with me in spirit.


Master Gardener, I heard some folks complain about the weeds in our gardens that ever so often wrap around our tongues, hands and feet.

Weeds interfere with our ability to be at peace and give peace.

Many struggle to release these weeds, roots of entanglement that kill the peace that you give us.

As one vice is released another one stands up against many of us.

It’s a constant battle to be free and at peace.

Master Gardener, hear our prayer.

Holy One, release all who are bound and at war.

O Merciful Peacemaker, prune our gardens.

Magnificent Lighthouse, shine your Divine Light on all who fear.

Shower your people with your Holy peace.

Thank You O God for giving us your everlasting peace.

In Your Holy Name we pray. Amen.

Remember God’s Promise

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.”

‭‭John‬ ‭14:27‬ ‭NRSV‬‬

God Move this Mountain

To the God who does extraordinary things through ordinary people. Give us peace.

To the God whose power is bountiful. Let not a virus prevail. Spread your love, O God.

To the God who moves mountains, raised the dead to life and heals all manner of diseases, conquer our fears and all that breaks our body, mind, and spirit.

Holy Spirit, that permeates every cell within us, cleanse whatever is spoiled. Strengthen whatever is vulnerable and protect whatever is healthy.

Bless us with a common love for you and one another.

In our Savior’s Name we pray. Amen

God Bless America

God Bless America!”
I wonder what the speaker understands about this request. Listen carefully while saying this powerful prayer request out loud. “God Bless America!”

It often appears at the end of politically charged speeches. In this context, it may sound like a command, demand, or mandate rather than a prayerful request. Practice saying, “God, bless America.”

These words spoken with humility are a supplication, petition and prayer. Try saying, God, bless…
The comma offers a way for us to practice pausing, parking, and praying. We reflect on our thoughts before proceeding.

“God, Bless, “allows us time to turn our attention away from ourselves and towards Spirit. The comma positions us to PARK. Commas will enable us to stop the excess chatter in our mind and lay our thoughts in our hearts. When we park at the thrown of Grace, we connect with the Holy One. We are fully present with God.

Many of us wouldn’t begin our phone conversation by saying, “Diane, give me” or “Martha bless me!” We usually give a greeting or say a welcoming statement. “Good Morning John, how are you? I hope all is well.” We check in with one another.

Try saying, “Good Afternoon, God! Thank you for taking my call.” Then, “God, I am not satisfied with…” Or, “God, I am thankful for what you did…” Then ask, “God, Bless America.” Our prayer ends with a powerful affirmation of faith that indicates God is the source of power. Therefore, say, “I pray in Your Holy Name.” Finally, consider ending your prayer with “Amen,” or “So be it,” or “According to God’s Will.”

I believe God answers our prayers. I hope you will recognize God’s answer as a blessing. God often gives us what we need, and when we need it.
Let’s Park and Pray at 1:11 pm this prayer:

Almighty God, we thank you for your omnipresence. Thank you for the many ways you share your unconditional love with us. God, keep us healthy in body, mind, and Spirit so we may live according to your will and ways. Give us hope for our future and patience to endure and overcome our troubles. Heal our brokenness. Bless us with your truth as the source for our wisdom and decisions. Forgive our sins and help us to recognize and overcome our transgressions. May we live each day to satisfy you and to receive your favor. Merciful God, we pray in our Savior’s Name. Amen.

Lincoln Prayed

President Lincoln said, “I’ve been driven many times upon my knees.” I wonder how many of us have been driven upon our knees? If so, then what?

Let’s Park & Pray at 1:11

Merciful God, we are reminded that President Lincoln was driven upon his knees and humbly sought your guidance. Inspire those who declared an oath to serve You and country to humble themselves before your throne of grace.

Inspire our Leaders to be righteous, forgiving and just.

Receive our prayers, wherever and whatever our persuasions may be.

Standing, sitting, falling on bended knees, or lying faced down with outstretched hands, we pray our best from our hearts.

When we pray, “God bless America!” Help us to know that You bless us in unexpected ways.

Give us this day as our daily Bread and deliver us from evil. We pray in Your Holy Name. Amen

A Prayer Santa Clarita School

For healing and strength.

Lord Have Mercy! Have Mercy, O Lord!
When school bells stopped ringing
When voices are silenced by gunshots
When innocent lives are stolen,
When there’s terror and fear.
We need You O Lord! Trouble is near.
Lord Have Mercy!
O God, Who moves the hands of clocks,
Who jumpstarts and awakens a sluggish heart,
Who fills lungs with air and restores each breath.
Eternal God, with us in life and in times of death.
We park and pray at 1:11, for lives lost and broken families.
Lord Have Mercy!
Put away the weapons and remove the rage
Disarm those who harm and fail to protect,
Who lack humane dignity and respect,
Lord, we pray for those injured, in pain and suffering
.

Daily….We Park and Pray at 1:11.
